model A fenders

I have seen a lot of Model A fenders with arc welded crack repair and have never seen a good job. About 50 years ago I was working in a welding shop that build food processing equipment, mostly out of heavier material. A job came in to build some 16 ga enclosures for "Radio Phones", about the size of an old computer tower, the old time welder was burning quite a few holes in them, I was the 23 year old "Kid" in the shop. I asked If I could try one. I rotated it around and arc welded It down hill , rod up . The boss came back in the shop and told the old timer they looked pretty good, I got some respect thata day and soon was also doing the painting.
